Hi Brian -
Not to be impatient, but I was wondering how the release of the .NET book is coming along. Amazon is no longer taking new pre-orders, and wrote to ask if I wanted to cancel my pre-order.
Wishing your book the best of luck.

Hi - The book is finished. I got my copy two weeks ago and Amazon received a shipment last week. I assume that it's still listed as 'out of print' b/c their warehouse needs to get it properly stocked and in their computer system. Since they've had it for a week now, I'm hoping that in the next day or two Amazon will show it as being in stock.
 
Thanks for your patience!

Hi Brian -

I received the book, and finally am finding the time to really get into it. I am very pleased so far.

But where do I get the sample code? It's clear where the download for the older 2003 book is, but I can't find one for the new book. If the samples are the same, then entering the "first word on page 250" needs to accept the answer for the new book.

Thanks

Oh man, I totally forgot about the sample code! Let me work on that this weekend and get it posted.

 
Sorry!

Hi Brian,
 
Is there any way we can have the ASP.NET application picks up a saved RPT file (with saved parameters values and data) and just refresh only (no need to view)?
 
Should we need to handle Reportdoc.refresh() function in C#?
 
Please help.

Brian,

Thank you for your insight and publications. I have had great success implementing what I learned from Crystal Reports .Net Programming. I used that knowledge for solutions in both VB and C# applications. I have new web projects slated using 3-tier asp.net with mysql. Therefore, I am excited about the new book and will check it out soon. Additionally, in my organization, we are beginning to explore global data resources and have end users interested in data mining. What type of reference would you recommend for end users who have excel knowledge and want to explore creating their own crystal reports?

Thank you

Gene

I hope this is the book I've been looking for.  My organization uses Visual Studio 2008 with VB and the embedded version of Crystal Reports along with Access 2003 databases.  Do the examples in this book use a database that is available in .mdb format or do they require using SQL Express?

Yes, this book should be just what you need. It covers connecting to .mdb and SQL Server. It also covers connecting to datasets, custom classes, etc.
